This is a well appointed museum. It has many varieties of Ohio glass. Don’t miss the glass blowing exhibit. We have seen several demos and this one by Theresa was the best experience. If I were closer, I’d take a class there.

Seeing the history of glass in the region (Hocking Hills is the Hocking in anchor Hocking) was really interesting and the glass blowing demonstration was great. We even bought the piece he made and picked it up on the drive home from our trip.

My wife really enjoys this place and always brings home some of the Anchor glassware as well. They also have some beautiful glass made there in their studio. Worth the stop!

Learned about the numerous Ohio glass manufacturing companies as well as a tour of the unbelievable blown glass. The highlight of the tour was the glass blowing demo, watched as a stunning vase created. Thanks Mike, your piece was beautiful

Changing displays of local art glass, a movie on the history of glass making in the US and in Lancaster, and live glass blowning demonstrations. VERY complete and enjoyable.
